Working Across Generations (or Intergenerationality)
Start Day and Time
Wednesday May 10 11:15-12:30 p.m.
Venue and Meeting Room
124 America's Center
Today's museum workplace is evolving, as five generations collaborate (or collide), as supervisors or direct reports, on project- and team-based initiatives across our institutions. Join this lively conversation as we explore the various generations in the workforce today (traditionalists, baby boomers, genX, genY, and gen2020), what characterizes them, what myths and truths are associated with each, and how we might address issues and concerns as we all learn to get along.
